Yes, it’s in the air, can you feel it? Autumn has arrived! The air is getting cooler and the leaves are beginning to change. Nature puts on the best show this time of year and provides us with plenty to work with when creating seasonal centerpieces. Here are my favorites to inspire you this season in creating a beautiful display!
A branch stabilized in moist floral foam and wrapped in burlap sack makes an stately centerpiece on a simple fall table. Pair it with smaller arrangements of flowers in fall colors.
Pine cones purchased at a craft store or collected on an autumn walk make perfect vase filler. Add mini ornaments suspended on simple branches to complete the look.
Natural acorns make charming ornaments too, you can even add craft paint to the shells for a fun pop of color.
What is fall without pumpkins? Silver painted minis make elegant candleholders on top of mercury glass candlesticks.
Dip leaves in a golden bowl for color and float candles on top for ambiance.
The bounty from your annual apple picking tradition surrounds a pillar candle in a large glass bowl.
Nuts and berries in tiered bowls and urns bring nature’s treats to your fall table.
A collection of mini pumpkins and walnuts forms an easy natural vignette on top of a pretty beribboned cake stand.
Cinderella pumpkins make a beautiful tiered display when stacked in varied colors and sizes.
A simple rectangular white tray corrals a changing collection of pumpkins, flowers, and stems.
White pumpkins faux or real can be carved out to form vases for fresh flowers in seasonal shades.
Branch clippings truly are the easiest centerpiece such as festive green acorns.
Bowl of pears or figs from the market and some branch clippings for an effortless display.
Are you inspired by this season in decorating your home? What are your favorite autumn accents to bring indoors?
